Library Board


The Public Libraries Act (RSO, 1990), which is a provincial statute, designates Library Boards as governing boards. The Act grants boards with the authority to make policy and to govern the library's affairs. For the most part, library boards:
  • determine which services are offered by the library

  • seek funds through the Municipal Council's budget

  • seek additional funding and grants

  • appoint a Chief Executive Officer
